Music star Rhianna has joked that her baby son is upset that she is taking his soon-to-be-born sibling to the Oscars instead of him.
The pop superstar, 35, revealed she was pregnant last month, just hours after her performance at the Super Bowl in Arizona.
On Sunday, she shared a video of her eldest son, who was born in May last year, watching her music video for Lift Me Up ahead of her highly-anticipated performance at the 95th Academy Awards ceremony.
The singer will perform the Oscar-nominated track at the ceremony on 12 March at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
Ahead of the performance, Rihanna shared a close-up photograph on Instagram of her son’s face seemingly upset.
She captioned the Instagram post: “My son when he found out his sibling is going to the Oscars and not him @theacademy #oscarnominee #oscarperformancein1week.”
The Barbadian singer also shared a short clip of the infant watching her music video for Lift Me Up on a laptop, as he sat on her lap at a dining room table.

The song – written for Marvel’s blockbuster sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – picked up a nomination for best original song – her first Oscar nomination.
Also nominated was Lady Gaga’s Hold My Hand from Top Gun: Maverick.
The American singer won the award in 2019 for her hit Shallow from the film A Star Is Born, in which she also starred alongside Bradley Cooper.
Lift Me Up has earned Rihanna multiple nominations throughout the 2023 awards season, including at the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards.
